A Nation Of Radicals

Don’t you just ha ate it when the wind blows and radically changes how perfect that grass was standing when you were taking that perfect photo of it ….. or better yet, how radicals force you to change the way you think?

If you get a chance, read the article called “A Conversation With Malik Rahim” in The Pittsburgh City Paper. Besides being an excellent article, it brings to light that our whole country was created by radicals. Point being is that Obama is seen as a radical because of who he associated with – but everyone forgets, as Malik pointed out in the interview …… America’s founding fathers were the biggest radicals you could think of. Now, I’m not an Obama nor McCain supporter ….. personally I don’t think either one was ready for the position.

Everyone fears radicals …… yes some are bad, but the worse thing to fear is no change at all. When it comes down to it, radicals are probably the least of your worries.

Either one of our presidential candidates this year could be looked at as radicals ….. they each had their points they wanted heavy change on — heavy change. This doesn’t mean we should have put them in prison or single them out …. but discerned their points and ideas to determine which ones fit and benefit the residents and visitors of this country. Because people think differently doesn’t mean they are going to make a law to empty out your bank accounts, take you house, make you a slave …… or better yet, make you stand in line for toilet paper. It’s an indication that a percentage of the nation is ready to grow up into it’s next phase of existence.

As you keep to your “values” – if you have any – less the ones the press dictates you have, and you hopefully discern what you believe is good for your country ….. try to remember one thing: If there weren’t radicals, there wouldn’t be an America.
